The Measure [SA]

January 29th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

The enduring memory I will have of The Measure is their singer, Lauren, roaming the halls of the Holiday Inn on the last night of Fest 7 with Britain’s own ambassador for alcohol, El Morgan. They were supervising parties or something, while simultaneously partying very hard themselves.
So I was excited to get this CD through [...]

Broadway Calls

January 29th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Broadway Calls played Fest and I didn’t go. Now I’m a bit gutted about this. I am informed by reliable sources that they were really good, and I don’t doubt that from the sounds of this CD.
They are a pop-punk band from Oregon, and this is their full-length CD. However they have just signed to [...]

John Player Specials

January 27th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Something about this CD reminds me of the music that I was listening to loads around 5 years ago. As soon as the first track kicks in, I’m transported back to the Underworld watching Rebelation, Splitters, The Scrub, Duff Muffin and other bands of that ilk. And I guess that’s what this band kind of [...]

No Idea

January 26th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

My main memory of this CD is driving around somewhere in Orlando from strip-mall to strip-mall looking for a good one, while playing this loud. We were all sat in the backseat, geeking out over our schedules of who we were going to see the coming weekend. Pretty much every track that came on, someone [...]

Catnap zine

January 17th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: Reviews · Zine reviews

This is quite sweet. It’s only issue two and the author sent a letter saying “we are new to the zine world, so please be gentle with us.” So I will.
It’s not much, just three folded A4 pages long. The front cover promises ‘boobs’, and I was bitterly disappointed with the lack of these. It’s [...]

Mild Peril zine

January 17th, 2009 · posted by jas · marked as: Reviews · Zine reviews

Awesome! Every so often, something drops through the letterbox for review that I’m pretty chuffed about. This was one such thing. I have perhaps one other copy of Mild Peril floating around here somewhere and have always been meaning to pick more up but always been too absent minded or skint to get round to [...]

The Fest

November 12th, 2008 · posted by jas · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

First of all, I have to apologise for what a messy review this will be in advance. To me, the Fest was a hazy experience of food, drink, and fun as much as it was about the music. So here’s a quick rundown of what the weekend entailed for me…
For all of those new to [...]

Reggae for the People tour

July 11th, 2008 · posted by jas · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

Tucked away in the back streets of central London is the little gem of ULU, a place I hadn’t been before tonight, which was set to stage a very special gig. This was the penultimate night of the ‘Reggae for the People’ tour, organised by the Rockers Revolt label, and featuring a blinding line-up.
At 7.45 [...]

Do The Dog 12th Birthday, mark II

June 8th, 2008 · posted by jas · marked as: Live reviews · Reviews

SkaNights runs a monthly gig/club at the Rhythm Factory on the first Saturday every month (saying it between every band really did make me remember it!). Last month was the Do The Dog birthday bash, and this month is… the Do The Dog birthday bash. I’m not complaining, the label has so many new bands [...]
